National title game to break tie among Broadcaster’s bowl-game guessperts
There’s a lot on the line when Alabama opposes Clemson Monday night for college football’s national championship bragging rights.
There’s even more on the line right here in Deer Park when the two teams kick off at 7 p.m. at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif.
Bragging rights for best Deer Park Broadcaster bowl-game guesspert will be on the table. Believe it or not, through 21 bowl games, we have a tie for first place between two of our 10-year-old guessperts.
Sean Dupuis and Kaleb Wingo are deadlocked for the top spot with identical 13-8 records. There will be no tie after Monday night because the two went different directions for the national championship game.
Sean is predicting Alabama will win the big game 38-21, while Kaleb thinks Clemson will prevail in a nailbiter 24-21. Of the Broadcaster’s four guessperts just Kaleb is siding with Clemson.
Kaleb has been on a roll. After his guesspert abilities saw him start off 0-4, he correctly predicted the winning team in 12 of the next 14 bowl games, an amazing run for any bowl-game prognosticator.
Sean began in blistering fashion, correctly picking the winning team in 10 of the opening 12 bowl games. Sean would have accurately predicted the opening eight bowl games correctly were it not for TCU’s win in overtime over California in the Cheez-It Bowl on Dec. 26.
But the games on Dec. 31 and Jan.1 were not that kind to Mr. Dupuis, resulting in the current deadlock for the top spot.
Fellow Deer Park Seminole youth football player Rome Gatlin is just one back of the leaders at 12-9. He’s picking Alabama to prevail over Clemson by a 28-21 score.
As for Marcus Molina, the Deer Park High School varsity football player on our panel, he’s 11-10. Marcus is predicting Alabama will topple Clemson by a 23-14 score.
But Marcus can boast of the best predicted final score from our panel. In the Rose Bowl, he felt Ohio State would defeat Washington by a 27-24 score. The actual final was 28-23.
